The proper fit of a life jacket can be the difference between life and death. I'm not trying to scare you, but I see so many people make this mistake. This is a picture of one of my daughters a few years ago when we were on the water with our boat, safety is everything. So, I wanted to give you life jackets safety tips.

Life Jacket Safety Tips

  • When selecting a life jacket, ALWAYS read the manufacturers sizing chart. Each manufacturer can vary so read carefully.
  • Select the size based on your child's current weight. My youngest just moved up a size. Make sure you check you have the proper weight BEFORE heading out in the water.
  • Life jackets do not replace adult supervision. I was at the beach the other day and just because the child had floaties on mom was over 300 feet away, not paying attention. This is a big no-no. Never be more than arm's length away from a child.
  • Don't allow your child to use a life jacket as a toy or improperly. Teach them the correct use and how to fasten a life jacket correctly.
  • Make sure your life jacket is Coast Guard Approved.
  • Set good examples for children. Always wear a life jacket when on open water or on a motor craft.
